I have a Sonos connect V2 connected to a sound system in my office. I also have Sonos sl pretty distant from the sound system. When I receive phone call, I want to pause the Sonos group. As there is no pause button anymore on the connect V2 and the SL is too distant, I would like to know how to pause the system quickly without using the app. Is there any remote pause button control that exists to pause the system?

All Connects have a pause button (though the icon varies by version). Are you talking about a Port?

If you need a physical remote you can use the IKEA stuff: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/symfonisk-sound-remote-white-20370482/

There are remote controls for the Sonos system: https://www.sonos.com/en-us/shop/accessories/remote-controls?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh7371e3Z7AIVE5OyCh080wwSEAAYASAAEgIIU_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds ,(cheaper) https://www.theverge.com/2019/10/1/20892984/ikea-sound-controller-review-symfonisk or http://www.spinremote.com/

Pausing the speaker from which you started a group should stop the whole group. I myself control the One in my office/attic by voice (you could use a Nest Mini or Alexa device) or by the Windows app on my PC.
